FOREST, Ohio - An Ohio man who survived the deadly shooting spree at a Colorado movie theater says he initially thought the attack was part of theatrical special effects.
Eighteen-year old Gage Hankins of Forest in northwest Ohio said in a televised news conference Monday the attack came about 20 minutes into the movie at a scene with gunshots.
Hankins says he and his friends heard a hissing noise, saw smoke, heard a loud bang and then a lot of popping noises.
Hankins says he thought it was special effects in the theater, then felt pressure on his arm and saw a hole.
He says a friend quickly got him out of the theater.
Hankins was in Colorado attending a national conference for young people who stutter.
